If you are talking game balance based on weapons, then take a page from previous attempts at game balance.

single lightsaber - balanced offensive/defensive abilities plus a faster reaction times
(game play the charcter utilies 60% of his abilities offensively as well as defensively.

2 lightsabers or "lightspear?" - focused on either offensive or defensive with slower reaction
(game play balance either 75/15 offensive focus or 15/75 defensive focus with customizable +/- 10% meaning anywhere from an 85/5 to 65/25 offensive focus to a defensive focus of 5/85 to 25/65 effort.

What this would set is that single lightsaber players use 120% of their abilities but split for even based attack and defense. those with 2 lightsabers or lightspears only use 90% of their abilities but can customize themselves to either tank or deal damage. in this way players can choose their method of gameplay, from slow and steady to outright attack to hard as a rock approach with good and bad qualities across the board giving game balance.
